Bazzul, Jesse; Wallace, Maria F. G.; Higgins, Marc – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this article, we, a multivocal-thinking-assemblage, trouble what we feel is the dogmatic image of thought in science education. Beginning with Lars Bang's (Cult Stud Sci Educ, 2017) dramatic and disruptive imagery of the Ouroboros as a means to challenge scientific literacy we explore the importance of dreams, thinking with both virtual and…

Farhangi, Sanaz – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this paper I argue for using the concept of "contribution" to activity to understand student engagement with science education and its transformational potential in formal settings. Drawing on transformative activist stance, I explain "contribution as how individuals take part in and transform collective practices according to…

Bang, Lars – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This paper explores the concept of scientific literacy through its relation to democracy and citizenship. Scientific literacy has received international attention in the twenty-first century as demonstrated by the Programme for International Student Assessment survey of 2006. It is no longer just a concept but has become a stated and testable…

Mitchell, Debra Bailey – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In responding to Murakami and Siegel's "Becoming Bermuda grass" one is led to reflect on one's own practice in what becomes an example of reflexivity. Following the authors' lead of incorporating Deleuze and Guattari's rhizomatic theory and the art form of decalcomania to reflect on practice, discoveries are made regarding the practice…

Murakami, Christopher D.; Siegel, Marcelle A. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This narrative project used rhizomatic analysis and reflexivity to describe a layered process of responding to a student's identity of non-participation within an undergraduate science classroom. Mapping rhizomes represents an ongoing and experimental process in consciousness. Rhizomatic mapping in educational studies is too often left out of the…

Scogin, Stephen C.; Cavlazoglu, Baki; LeBlanc, Jennifer; Stuessy, Carol L. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
While the achievement gap in science exists in the US, research associated with our investigation reveals some high school science programs serving diverse student bodies are successfully closing the gap. Using a mixed methods approach, we identified and investigated ten high schools in a large Southwestern state that fit the definition of…

Liu, Ning; Neuhaus, Birgit Jana – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
Given the globalization of science education and the different cultures between China and Germany, we tried to compare and explain the differences on teacher questions and real life instances in biology lessons between the two countries from a culture-related perspective. 22 biology teachers from China and 21 biology teachers from Germany…

Baptista, Geilsa Costa Santos – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
The goal of this paper is to propose tables of contextual cognition as a tool for research and a model to facilitate the intercultural dialogue on science education in schools. The proposal arose from a qualitative case study, involving the use of tables of compared cognition in biology classes in a Brazilian public school. The results indicate…

Nicholas, Celeste R. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This article is the first to describe the discoursal construction of an adolescent community of practice (CoP) in a non-school setting. CoPs can provide optimal learning environments. The adolescent community centered around science journalism and positioned itself dichotomously in relationship to school literacy practices. The analysis focuses on…

Otoide, Lorraine – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This article outlines a study of praxis. Inspired by my reading of Jacques Rancière's ("The ignorant schoolmaster: Five lessons in intellectual emancipation", trans. K. Ross, Stanford University Press, Stanford, 1991) influential text, "The Ignorant School Master", I explore the practical applications of his work for teaching…

Avraamidou, Lucy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
Given reform recommendations emphasizing scientific inquiry and empirical evidence pointing to the difficulties beginning teachers face in enacting inquiry-based science, this study explores a well-started beginning elementary teacher's (Sofia) beliefs about inquiry-based science and related instructional practices. In order to explore Sofia's…

Salloum, Sara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This conceptual paper aims to characterize science teachers' practical knowledge utilizing a virtue-based theory of knowledge and the Aristotelian notion of phronesis/practical wisdom. The article argues that a greater understanding of the concept of phronesis and its relevance to science education would enrich our understandings of teacher…

Stapleton, Sarah Riggs – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This forum response extends the argument made by Avery and Hains that oral traditions can be useful for including the cultures and contexts of rural areas within science instruction. To buttress the oral expressions presented in Avery and Hains, I compare oral expressions of a second rural area, 600 miles to the South, in Eastern North Carolina. I…

Zimmerman, Heather Toomey; Weible, Jennifer L. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
Guided by sociocultural perspectives on the importance of place as a resource for learning, we investigated 14- and 15-year old students' understandings of their community and water quality during a school-based watershed unit. Methods included a theory-driven thematic analysis of field notes and video transcripts from four biology classrooms, a…
